WEAVER/WRIGHT DISCUSS VILLAGE/SHAUN
Empire magazine spoke to both Sigourney Weaver about The Village and Edgar Wright about Shaun of the Dead at last night's Empire Awards.
First up is Weaver, who stars in the new M. Night Shyamalan supernatural thriller. 'I play Alice Hunt who's a widow - she's one of a group called The Elders of the village. It's a kind of a communal village and there's a group of people who run things very democratically. I'm Joaquin Phoenix's mother and he plays a very extraordinary, shy young man who's also very brave. It's a fabulous story on a lot of levels - not just scary but very interesting. I had nightmares for two weeks just reading it - so I think it's going to be very scary!'
Also, co-writer and director Edgar Wright talked about the horror comedy 'Shaun' and a possible sequel. 'We keep joking about sequel ideas, but this one hasn't even come out yet. But we'll do something in a similar vein if people like it. They might hate it. It might go down like a ton of bricks. It's very British. There's been a great reaction to the trailer in the States. People find it charming when we do a take on something ? it's only a mistake when we try and compete with the big boys.'
